South Shore Locavores

Calling all Locavores

Join us! Everyone is welcome.

Where does your food come from? How does it get to you? How healthy is it? How can you support local farmers and food producers through your food purchases?

The Kingston Public Library and edible South Shore & South Coast have teamed up to host an ongoing series of programs about the phenomenon of “eating locally.” Please join us in the discovery of our local food. 

ABC’s of Beekeeping!

Next up, Dec. 18th: Honey bees have a unique place in myth and history, and they’re essential to agriculture. They’re also vulnerable to pesticides and diseases, and, interestingly, amateur beekeepers play an important role in the survival of the species. Keeping bees is an increasingly popular backyard hobby, fascinating even to many who never intend to start a hive of their own. The South Shore Locavores are offering an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of backyard beekeeping when expert beekeepers Glen Cornell and Joe Sybertz of the Plymouth County Beekeepers Association share their many years of experience at the December 18th session of South Shore Locavores. The session will also feature a honey tasting.

The gatherings are free. However, if you are able, donations of $0 to $10 will be gratefully accepted to help cover expenses. Any surplus will be used towards library book purchases.
